    A must-have for PSP owners.

    I have mixed feelings about writing a review for a game collection. When you’re dealing with 21 games it’s hard to average an accurate total in terms of score. Plus the age of the games makes for some tricky reviewing. B... Read Full Review

    That is much better! But... something is missing!

    As you can see in this game, I noticed that Smash TV! in this XBOX version runs perfect! But however, some games like Marble Madness, Road-Blasters and Smash TV! have no sound for a few seconds and sound continues after ... Read Full Review

    I guess I haddn't realized just how lame most of these games were going to seem after all this time :-) Joust is still fun, and probably the best reason to have the collection. The menuing system created for the co... Read Full Review

    As a huge fan of old-school gaming, practically any attempt at packaging up classic arcade titles for new-generation consoles will get at least a look, even if the package has appeared before. Midway wasn't the first ar... Read Full Review

    Old school overload!

    If you'll notice the total time I spent playing this set of games, it says over 100 hours. Now, I haven't played this particular disc that long, but every game on here has been played for days upon days when I was a tike... Read Full Review

    This Carries Some Interesting Games And Not So Interesting Games

    Some of these games I have seen in an arcade before and some I have never heard of. Some of these are interesting to play and some are not but the problem is that they are too short. The graphics for most are overall ok,... Read Full Review

    A worthwhile buy for anyone who is willing to give older graphically lacking games a chance and likes a quick play.

    After playing my friend's copy, I had to go out and get it.

    Wow. After all the half-assed arcade compilations coming out (It sucked on the N64) this one shines through. There may not be as many as other compilations (from the 1k, atari 2600 days) this one really makes me feel I'm... Read Full Review

    Despite the interesting control quirks, this collection of old arcade games is definately worth it.

    Ever since the video arcade has been going through the apocolypse since 1996, video game publishers have been release their old arcade games as one-disc compilations. Midway Arcade Treasures for the GameCube is no except... Read Full Review
